From the centre of Grigno, along the close biotope Fontanazzo, you reach Selva. From there you can ascend to the Marcesina Plateau. The ascent is marked by a series of curves. It is a difficult but gorgeous route. Some parts are along a cliff on the valley, which dominates Grigno from above and the underlying cycling path.

You are not allowed to come back along the same road, which is a one way road.

Then you continue along the road and reach the Barricata refuge. Here you travel along the provincial road which leads you to Enego and Primolano, along a gorgeous descent. You go back to the starting point along the Brenta river, along the Valsugana cycling path.

Safety information

You are not allowed to come back along the same road, which is a one way road.

 

Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.

Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.

Always wear your helmet.

Make sure your front and rear lights are working.

Put out your arm to give advance warning of your intention to change position and before you do anything, check there are no vehicles coming up behind you.

Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!

Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.

If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
